an increase in the defense budget. but back then we had planes that couldn't fly for lack of spare parts or pilots. we had navy vessels that couldn't leave harbor because of lack of crew or, again, lack of spare parts. today we're well on our way to a 600-ship navy. we have 543 at present. we have -- our military, the morale is high. i think the people should understand that two-thirds of the defense budget pays for pay and salary, or pay and pension. and then you add to that food and wardrobe, and all the other things, and you only have a small portion going for weapons. but i am determined that if ever our men are called on, they should have the best that we can provide in the manner of tools and weapons. there has been reference to expensive spare parts, hammers costing $500. well, we are the ones who found those. i think we've given the american people back their spirit. i think there's an optimism in the land and a patriotism, and i think that we're in a position once again to heed the words of thomas paine, who said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again.'' >> than

. he is trying to make the case that the best defense is a better economy tying national security to the economy, but one very interesting thing that happened here, suzanne, mitt romney at the very end of this speech here said he is going to win pennsylvania. he said that earlier. he said it again he is going to pennsylvani the polls -- or latest cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney down by ten points here. it would be a very tough uphill climb for h to win tstate. >> right. >> i think it's in the romney campaign's interest to expand the map, and i think that's what they're trying to do. >> john mccain didn't win pennsylvania the last go round either. ditheyhange in any significant way when they look at the demographics and they get some sort of optimism or confidence from that? >> well, you know, pat toomey, the pennsylvania senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor
it in those swing states. and that's because mitt romney played defense a lot of the first half of this year. whether it was in the primaries or in may, when the primary was finally over, and the obama campaign really started to hit him hard on his bain record. there hasn't an opening or an effective way for him to articulate a vision to turning the economy around. and it shows in the poll numbers. >> lynn, if governor romney can't hang this economy over the president's neck in the next three or four weeks, is there a chance he can beat him? >> of course there is one big blooper from obama, and the mistake may certainly change the trajectory of the campaign. but garrett made a very good point. i want to quickly build on another reason why obama might have dealt with housing today. he's doing his debate prep in a suburb of las vegas. where is he now that it's hard hit? so, again, this is another reason -- a reason he's camped out there, deliberately, so to try to bolster his support in nevada. and again, i think he's just prophylactically building a community around himself, dealing with hous
from this issue. when you bring it up, it put to on the defense. he leaned into the issue. he said we're going to lose downscale white voters if you do .his year it' response was quite remarkable. it did lead to an uptick in enthusiasm among hispanics. a lot of praise from progressive. swing voters were glad somebody did something on an issue. it put republicans on the defensive. republicans have not only painted themselves into a corner, democrats are learning how to take advantage of that. >>>> whites they are part of your coalition. what should -- the democrats to eat and vision that has acted as 70. -- need a vision of activists dominant. >> in many ways, this will begin a trace 40 years later of upper middle class whites. obama consistently runs better among working-class whites denny guys anywhere else. -- that he does anywhere else. the numbers are better. he's running at 45% in ohio, say. part of that is bain, the auto industry. the big anomaly. unemplioymeoyments rates are very low. they are buffeted by this economy. niether party has shell and a cantilever positive economic

policy questions and in fairness he gets a chance to put president obama on the defensive the but to sflan to the american people specifically what he wants. here's the unfortunate truth about this, chris. both presidential candidates, president obama and governor romney are smart individuals. this is going to be a very good debate, because both are policy wonks and they're not afraid to answer a detailed question. >> nera, this morning chuck todd said to be honest -- they're both smart men, but neither is a great debater. he thinks the vice presidential debate will be a lot more interesting. however, mitt romney has 20 primary debates under his belt and president obama has none this time around. if you look at history, the past four incumbent presidents have had a difficult time in the first debate. give me your take on this. >> the president has had numerous press conferences. obviously piece asked questions about policy and he has to answer them. he has to practice having sharper answers, because you have a limited amount of time. i do think, though, that governor romne
quite peaceful for the first five months then because of the brualty getting armed in self-defense. so many syrians feel he failed in the language he used to describe the conflict as a popular revolution based on civil rights, based on human rights. and he was street treating it as a civil war and against each other and the government war being one of the infraction and that really frustrated syrians. let's end this question now. some of our colleagues would like to chime in with a couple more words. if you promise to be brief. >> i'll be brief. >> i just want to see when you talk about issues of negotiation and peace plans, you have to assume that the other party is civilized. when you have the other party using bombs to hit civilian areas, when you have snipers taking out children in bread lines, this is not a regem you can neglect a peace. this is a regime that has to go. >> i will simply direct you to an interview that the defected prime minister had two days ago in which he said that this was a first time made public that he had gone with the most senator leaders, the regional com

said, he did not hammer him enough on it. even if you add up all of the deductions and then the defense spending, you are just going further into the hole. >> thank you. that is dave's tweet to us. we also have our facebook page open and our twitter account. you can send us lots of comments and any of these mediums. you can reach us on facebook.com/cspan. this is laurie who is a democrat. >> this is maria. i was calling to say i think romney is running on his ego. what he has been talking about all through this campaign was just taking care of the rich and not try to help the ones down below. there are so many people that need help. when obama bought into office, he already had that debt. it takes time for a person to -- romney should know -- it takes time to settle that big of a debt in more than four years. it will take more for us to get out of the dead that we are in. i think we should give president obama a chance for the next four years and let him prove himself. everybody is fighting against him. the first year the republicans said they want to stop obama. everybody should have a
before that, when engine charlie wilson who eisenhower named to defense secretary, said what's good for gm is good for america, and vi versa, he was ridiculed because stpldeodt is good for the big corporation in terms of profits is not necessarily good for workers, even though at that time gm was unionized and engine charlie's words more likely the fact then than they are right now. the fact is for the last 30 years america has seen corporations do better and better and better and yet the median wage has gone absolutely nowhere, adjusted for inflation. most people are more insecure in termof their jobs and their benefits are drying up. corporate profits should not necessarily co at the expense or bint,t exactly what has happened and the bain framework, the bain strategy is at the center of this strategy overall. >> harvest is a very interesting word that he used. it's kind of like ling not a few years ago, you know, the term "out of the box." i remember back in the '80s when farming wasn't too bad and a certain player harvested so many numbers or we're going to gon and harvest a bus
way is, let's go back to year 2000 defense department levels. we have a very bloated, wasteful military budget that has doubled over the year 2000. are we twice as secure? i do not think so. we can look at the blow back happening across the middle east. you can see having this hyper military is a man these drone wars and pakistan and somalia, which the president began to expand on day 3 and office. there were no republicans to blame it on. he began to expand the war effort massively. it is calling for $600 billion to renovate nuclear weapons and a new modes of delivering them. this is not the direction we need to go. we need a foreign policy based on human rights, not on the procurement of oil resources. we provide for a green a new deal that would directly create jobs. because it creates jobs in the green economy, it allows us to back off these wars for oil and save hundreds of billions of dollars on the bloated military. instead it puts that money into jobs, health care, and education -- the things we need at home to create national security. host: the biggest challenge is ge
consequences of that and on the republican side there's got to be some more revenue and defense is going to take some kind of a hit and that's going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. fred, if you were sitting down with harry reed or glenn if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell and they're about to go in the room and get a lot of blood on their hands and be ankle deep in blood, not to be too vivid, but what would you tell them to be mindful of? >> that's a very good question and i think it's going to be hard to answer it for a lot of reasons. one of which is the function of time. the other thing it would be presumptionous of me. >> glenn and i are smart guys and well read, we have good tastes in movies apparently. and we know policy. but look, we're also political people and we're paid to give political advice. so my advice would be don't have people lock me in the room. and we are paid or not paid to sort of point out all the different angles. and i really believer there are times in our country where you're not looking for abcd you're looking for a to z. i'm reading a b

on offense or defense, but because the other side keeps making mistakes. the implosion is like monthing to do with the obama campaign really, so they can't afford to lay back at all or it will depress turnout. his point was you all are being entirely too cautious. >> i don't think that's true. i appreciate governor rendell. the fact is we've had a strategy that we've executed from the beginning. i think it's been effective. ultimately, we're ahead because the american people -- we're ahead, candy, because the american people believe that this president has many his mind and in his heart the middle class and how to rebuild an economy that works for the middle class in this country and that is fundamental in what they're looking for. i look at this debate. that's what we talk about. >> do you really think that americans believe that? if you look at right track, wrong track, many believe we're on the wrong track. many more believe that the economy is in a bad condition right now than in a good condition. isn't this more of what ed rendell is suggesting? >> i can quote polling statist ebbings as
60 or 70 million people. the president did not play to offense or defense wednesday night. he didn't defend himself against charges that mitt romney made of his administration that have been fact checked time and again on the president's side. and he didn't play offense. he didn't give a sense where he wanted to go. judy, vice presidential debate does matter because the democrats can't lose two in a row. they really can't. i think joe biden is in a stronger position because he has spent a lot of time, four years, defending, explaining and making the case for barack obama whereas paul ryan is in an awkward position. he's going to defend, make the case to mitt romney whom he has basically been joined to the hip at six weeks ago. and you know, he's got the whole independent political identity himself. i mean biden obama as a team at this point. but i think that the president, is just going to forget the first debate and be ready in the second one to make his case. and to engage. he wasn't ingauged. if you turn down the sound on wednesday night and just watch tho two people, he is did
